Serrano Ham Shoulders
<p>The <strong>Serrano ham shoulder</strong>, which is also known informally as Paleta de Jamón Serrano or Paleta Serrana, is a product in great demand by ham lovers. The main advantage of buying a Paleta de Serrano is its price, but the quality and particularities of this piece also make it an interesting option.</p> <h2>Buy Serrano ham shoulders.</h2> <p>In this section of the store you can find a selection of <strong>the best high quality Serrano ham shoulders</strong>. White pork shoulders, cured Duroc shoulders and shoulders from Trevélez and Serón. When buying Serrano ham shoulders, you should know that they have a higher percentage of fat than Serrano hams, which is why their flavour and smell are more intense.</p> <h2>Online Spanish ham shoulder store.</h2> <p>We offer you a large selection of shoulders of pork from the same producers as the hams, so their quality is guaranteed.</p> <p>We have pork shoulders of between 4 and 6 kilos from the best brands. You can buy 100% natural shoulders with no additives, Gran Reserva de la Alpujarra shoulders and the exquisite Duroc pork shoulders. For the most demanding, you will also find <strong>organic ham shoulder</strong>s certified by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food. </p> <h2>The best Serrano Ham Shoulder online</h2> <p>Although it is sometimes referred to as Paleta de Jamón Serrano, or <strong><a href="https://jamonpasion.com/gb/products/buy-pork-shoulders/iberico-ham-shoulder/" target="_blank">paleta iberico</a> </strong>ham shoulder, it should be pointed out that the correct term is "Paleta Serrana". The reason is that "paleta" refers to the front limbs, while "jamón" refers to the hind limbs. For this reason, talking about Paleta de Jamón Serrano is not the most appropriate, although its use is widespread among consumers and can be useful to distinguish a Paleta Serrana from an<strong> <a href="https://jamonpasion.com/gb/products/buy-pork-shoulders/bellota-iberico-ham-shoulder/" target="_blank">Ibérico ham shoulder</a></strong>.</p> <p>There are certain differences between a Paleta Serrana and a Jamón Serrano. For example, the paleta is smaller and has less variety of nuances in its flavour, but its flavour is always more intense than that of a ham. As a consequence of the latter, some consumers choose to buy an acorn-fed ham shoulder instead of a Serrano ham, especially those who have a palate more prone to strong flavours.</p> <p>In any case, when <strong>buying a Serrano ham shoulder</strong> you will find the same categories, associated with their level of quality. They are Bodega, Reserva and Gran Reserva, with curing times slightly shorter than those of a Serrano ham. We can also talk about Duroc shoulders, which refers to the breed of pig used for this shoulder and which is considered to be the highest quality white pig breed. At Jamón Pasión we only sell top-quality Serrano hams and shoulders, which is why you will only find shoulders classified as Reserva, Gran Reserva and Duroc. In addition, many of the hams you will find in our catalogue have the added advantage of being 100% natural, as we specify in each case.</p> <h2>What is the price of a Paleta ham shoulder?</h2> <p>When <strong>buying a spanish ham shoulder</strong>, the price of a Paleta de Serrano is another factor that tips the scales in favour of this product, as it is the cheapest option for those who wish to buy a whole piece. In other words, buying a Paleta de Ibérico or a <strong>acorn-fed Ibérico de Bellota paleta</strong> is more expensive if we take into account its price per kg. On the other hand, if we make a comparison between a Paleta and a Serrano Ham, we will see that the price of the former is also cheaper, although there may be exceptions depending on the producer or the curing time.</p> <p>On the other hand, what is a general trend are the low prices at Jamón Pasión. We specialise in Serrano Shoulder and Ham, so you will find a wide variety of products from different regions of Spain. And that will allow you to find options adapted to your budget. On the other hand, we launch offers throughout the year, making the final price of many Serrano Shoulders even cheaper.</p> <p>If you want to discover our promotions and products in stock, take a look at our Paletas Serranas catalogue. You will find important discounts, more than 20% in many cases.</p>
Iberico Ham Shoulders
<p>The Iberico Spanish ham shoulder, which is popularly known by the name of Paleta ibérica, is an unbeatable option for lovers of Iberian ham and who also want to save on their purchase. This can be seen in the <a href="https://jamonpasion.com/gb/" target="_blank">Jamón Pasión online store</a> , where we sell these high-quality products at a very low price. We offer you guaranteed and certified products according to the legal regulations on <strong>Iberian ham, pork shoulder and pork loin</strong>.</p> <h2>What is an Iberico pork shoulder and what variety do we offer at Jamón Pasión?</h2> <p>An Iberian shoulder is a piece of meat that comes from the <strong>front limbs of the Iberian pig</strong>, unlike Iberian ham, which comes from the hind limbs. This piece is highly appreciated in Spanish gastronomy due to its delicious flavor and characteristic texture.</p> <p>On the other hand, the <strong>Iberian pig</strong> is a breed of pig native to the Iberian Peninsula, Spain and Portugal. In this section of our online store you can find a variety of <strong>Iberian shoulders based on the different categories</strong> sold and production areas.</p> <h3>Categories: Cebo and Cebo de Campo pork shoulders.</h3> <p>We offer you both Iberian bait shoulder, as well as Iberian bait shoulder. Despite the fact that the two categories of pork shoulders come from Iberian breeds, they <strong>differ in their diet and breeding</strong> .</p> <p>The <strong>Iberico cebo de campo shoulders</strong> are obtained from Iberian pigs fed with a mixed diet composed of wild grasses present in the field, legumes and cereals. On the other hand, the <strong>Iberian pigs</strong> destined for the production of Iberian ham or Iberico Cebo shoulders are raised on intensive farms, on farms, and feed on cereals and legumes.</p> <p>At Jamón Pasión, the master ham maker individually selects each piece directly from the natural drying sheds, both the Cebo Iberico and the Cebo de Campo Iberico shoulders, to guarantee its quality.</p> <h3>Variety in breed purity</h3> <p>As in cured hams, Iberian shoulders can have a <strong>percentage of racial purity that ranges between 50%, 75% and 100% Iberian</strong>. Purebred pigs are normally used to make acorn-fed hams and shoulders, and although you can find 100% Iberian Cebo and Cebo de campo shoulders, the most common is that within this category, which are identified with the <strong>seal white and green</strong>, respectively, and the Iberian percentage of pigs in this category <strong>is 50%.</strong></p> <h3>Variety of producers and distinguished brands</h3> <p>We have the best producers, such as those of Embutidos Morato, awarded on numerous occasions for the <strong>best Iberico hams</strong>.</p> <p><a href="https://jamonpasion.com/gb/fabricantes/benito.html" target="_blank">Benito hams</a> , internationally known. Hams from small producers who pamper their products located in the <strong>Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche</strong>, Huelva, or the magnificent <strong>Iberian shoulders without additives</strong> from Jamones de Juviles, made in the Alpujarra de Granada.</p> <p>We also offer you the best pieces made in Extremadura and Salamanca. Buying at Jamón Pasión is a guarantee that you will get <strong>very high quality shoulders</strong>.</p> <h3>Price of Iberico Ham shoulder in Jamón Pasión</h3> <p>The price of an Iberian shoulder ham depends on several factors, including:</p> <ul style="list-style-type: circle;"> <li><strong>Feeding</strong>: The price is lower if they have been fed only with feed and higher if wild grasses have been included in their diet.</li> <li><strong>Its category</strong>: The Iberian shoulder is cheaper if it is Cebo and a little more expensive if it is Cebo de Campo.</li> <li>Of course, the <strong>weight of the shoulder and the curing time</strong> also come into play, which is usually longer in an ibérico cebo de campo shoulder than in a Cebo one.</li> </ul> <p>However, the price of an Iberian shoulder ham is always lower than usual at Jamón Pasión. Because? Mainly because <strong>we work directly with the producers</strong> , in such a way that the Iberian ham shoulder that you receive at home will arrive directly from the dryer, avoiding the intervention of intermediaries.</p> <p>In our store you will find one of the <a href="https://jamonpasion.com/gb/products/buy-pork-shoulders/bellota-iberico-ham-shoulder/pata-negra-pdo-los-pedroches-jamon-pasion.html" target="_blank">best 100% Iberian acorn-fed pork shoulders</a> with Protected Designation of Origin Jamón de Los Pedroches at an incomparable price.</p> <p>It should also be noted that at Jamón Pasión we launch <strong>numerous promotions and offers</strong>, so the price of your Iberian shoulder ham may have an additional discount.

The differentiation factors are the breed, food and breeding, and the healing period of each type. The choice between these options will depend on the preferences and budget of each consumer.</p> <p>The <strong>Iberico pork shoulder</strong> comes from Iberian pigs and can have different categories depending on their diet, such as Iberian Cebo, Iberian Cebo de Campo or acorn-fed.</p> <p>Within the paleta iberico, the <a href="https://jamonpasion.com/gb/products/buy-pork-shoulders/bellota-iberico-ham-shoulder/" target="_blank"><strong>acorn-fed iberico pork shoulder</strong></a><b> </b>comes from Iberian pigs raised in the wild and <strong>fed mainly with acorns and natural resources</strong> during the montanera. Due to its feeding, breeding, and prolonged curing time, the acorn-fed shoulder acquires a superior quality and flavor.</p> <p>On the other hand, the Iberian cebo de campo shoulders are obtained from Iberian pigs fed with a mixed diet of wild grasses present in the field, legumes and cereals, while the cebo pigs are raised on intensive farms and feed on cereals and legumes</p> <p>In contrast to the Iberian shoulders, the <a href="https://jamonpasion.com/gb/products/buy-pork-shoulders/serrano-ham-shoulder/" target="_blank"><strong>Serrano shoulder</strong></a> comes from white pigs, and can be without crosses, such as the Duroc or with crosses of different breeds such as Landrace, Large White, Pietrain and the same Duroc.</p> <p>It does not belong to the Iberian breed and its diet is based on feed and other foods and it is usually raised on farms, with the exception of some producers who make a difference by raising their pigs in semi-freedom. Therefore, it is a cheaper option.</p> <h3><span style="color: #f2c350;">How is the Iberian shoulder different from the Iberian ham?</span></h3> <p>While the Iberico shoulder comes from the front legs, the Iberico ham comes from the hind legs. Each one differs in size, curing time, flavor and texture, which has an impact on the final price of the product.</p> <ul style="list-style-type: circle;"> <li><strong>Size</strong>: The shoulder is smaller and shorter than the ham, since the front limbs are smaller than the hind limbs.</li> <li><strong>Taste and texture</strong>: The Iberian ham shoulder has a texture and flavor similar to that of Iberian ham, this being more powerful, due to the <strong>greater infiltration of fat</strong>, but without so many nuances. For its part, Iberico ham has a more complex flavor, with more subtle and delicate nuances due to its larger size and general curing time.</li> <li><strong>Price</strong>: The Iberian shoulder is more affordable for the pocket, but its yield is lower than that of a ham, as it has a higher percentage of fat.</li> </ul> <p>In any case, pork shoulder and Iberico ham share <strong>similar organoleptic properties</strong>, such as flavor, aroma and texture, with a perfect blend of strength and subtlety. And of course, with all the healthy properties of this breed, such as its high Omega-3 content.</p> <h3><span style="color: #f2c350;">How long will it take for the order to arrive?</span></h3> <p>Shipments are made the business day after the purchase and usually take time to reach the respective addresses within <strong>24/48 business hours</strong> , which the overall calculation if we count from the time of purchase can be up to 72 hours. No deliveries are made on Saturdays.</p> <p>Local holidays must be taken into account, as all hams are shipped directly from the producers' factories.</p> <p><strong>International shipments take around 5/6 business days</strong> from the departure date, which will also be the business day after purchase.</p> <p>Some formats, such as <strong>boneless, sliced ham</strong> or a specific brand, may have a longer delivery time, as specified in the file for each product.</p> <p>In the Christmas season, delivery times could suffer delays due to the high volume of work of transport agencies.</p> <p>The shipment tracking will always be sent to the e-mail so that at all times you know the expected delivery date.</p> <h3><span style="color: #f2c350;">How to preserve the ham shoulder?</span></h3> <p>It is important to locate the shoulder blade in a place <strong>away from sunlight and out of the reach of devices that emit heat</strong>. Once started, cover the cut part with plastic wrap and drop a clean kitchen towel on top.</p> <p>Never keep the ham with the cover or totally covered, since it must be given air so that humidity that could spoil the meat is not created.</p> <h3><span style="color: #f2c350;">How to carve an Iberico shoulder ham at home?</span></h3> <p><strong><a href="https://jamonpasion.com/gb/blog/how-to-carve-iberian-pork-shoulder-at-home-n105" target="_blank">Carving an Iberian pork shoulder at home</a></strong> and being able to take advantage of 100% of the meat is not impossible, but it does require some skill. Shoulders can be a little more difficult to cut than hams due to the morphology of the leg, but we encourage you to practice, as there is nothing better than eating freshly cut Iberian shoulder meat.</p>

You will find them at Jamón Pasión, marked with a <strong>black bridle</strong>, a label around the hoof that certifies and guarantees the quality, breeding and feeding of the pig.</p> <p>On the other hand, the acorn-fed Iberico shoulder hams that are <strong>less than 100% purebred</strong> come from pigs whose family tree also includes the <strong>Duroc</strong> breed. For this reason, their <strong>bridle is red</strong>.</p> <p>Among the red bridled shoulders, there are two different percentages of the breed. Those of the <strong>75% Iberian breed</strong>, come from the crossbreeding of a 100% Iberian pig and the other, <strong>50% Iberian</strong>. While the 50% Iberian breed pigs have a progenitor that is also 100% Iberian and the other is a Duroc pig. In both cases, the mother must always be 100% purebred Iberian.</p> <h2>Differences and similarities between the acorn-fed iberico ham and pork shoulder</h2> <p>The acorn-fed iberian por shoulders or paletilla iberico de bellota is one of the two<strong> front legs of the Iberian pig</strong>, unlike the ham, which corresponds to one of the two hind legs.</p> <p>In addition to this important anatomical difference, the acorn-fed shoulder has other distinctions from the <a href="https://jamonpasion.com/gb/products/buy-spanish-hams/bellota-iberico-hams/" target="_blank">acorn-fed iberico ham</a>: some that only a discerning palate will be able to identify and appreciate, and others that are more obvious:</p> <h3>Flavour intensity and curing period</h3> <p>The intensity of the flavour is greater in the paleta iberico de bellota (Pork shoulder) due to a <strong>greater infiltration of fat</strong> and a slightly higher salt content.</p> <p>Another difference in flavour is related to the curing time: the acorn-fed Iberian shoulder has a <strong>shorter curing period than a ham</strong> of the same category. This makes its flavour more homogeneous in all its parts, with <strong>less nuances, but more intense</strong>.</p> <p>The curing time of an Iberian acorn-fed shoulder can vary between <strong>18 and 24 months</strong>, depending on several factors and the weight of the pieces, while an Iberian acorn-fed ham will have a minimum curing period of 36 months, even up to 48 months.</p> <h3>Size</h3> <p>The acorn-fed iberico paleta has a smaller size and a smaller yield than an Iberico ham, making it an ideal choice for diners who like to consume this product in small quantities or families with few members.</p> <p>According to legal regulations, an acorn-fed shoulder with <strong>a red bridle cannot weigh less than 4 kg</strong>; and a 100% Iberian acorn-fed shoulder with a <strong>black bridle cannot weigh less than 3.75 kg</strong>. As a tip, it is advisable to buy the smaller size Iberian acorn-fed ham shoulders, as they have much less meat and more bone.</p> <p>We also offer you the possibility of <strong>buying boneless or sliced acorn-fed iberico ham shoulders</strong>, which will weigh less than the bone-in ham legs, but are ready to eat, as all the extra parts have been removed.</p> <h3>Price</h3> <p>One of the advantages of buying acorn-fed Iberian shoulder, including pata negra shoulders, is that its price is <strong>cheaper than that of a iberico Spanish ham of the same category</strong>. And this applies to the price per kilogramme of both whole shoulders and boneless or sliced shoulders.</p> <p>On the other hand, <strong>the quality of an acorn-fed Iberian shoulder is the same as that of a Spanish ham of the same category</strong>, as its origin and production are the same. We are talking about Iberian breed pigs, a species native to the Iberian Peninsula, which are reared in the most traditional and natural way possible: in the open air, in pastures of holm and cork oaks where they walk freely and obtain <strong>acorns in abundance</strong>, the most important part of their diet during the fattening season or montanera, which lasts from October to February, approximately.</p> <p>If you want to enjoy the best acorn-fed Iberian shoulder hams, browse our catalogue to buy your favourite, either for its origin, the purity of its Iberian breed or its price.</p> <p></p>
